    08/29/16WRQuincy EnunwaConcussionPROBABLEEnunwa (concussion) wore his helmet at Monday's practice, but he was also wearing a red jersey.

    Enunwa's return to practice, albeit in a limited capacity, suggests he has cleared the NFL's concussion protocol. He's locked in as the No. 3 wideout in an offense that makes heavy use of three and four-wide sets. Of course, Enunwa will likely be fourth in line for targets, trailing Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker and RB Matt Forte.

    08/28/16LBDavid HarrisShoulderQUESTIONABLEHarris (shoulder) expects to be ready for Week 1 after receivign the results of an MRI on Sunday, ESPN"s Adam Schefter reports.

    Harris will be held out of the preseason finale, which likely would have been the case even if he were healthy. Although he's coming off four straight seasons with 100+ tackles and at least two sacks, Harris is headed the wrong way in the IDP universe, as the Jets may consider using Erin Henderson and Darron Lee as their nickel 'backers.

    (Updated 08/28/2016)
    08/28/16WRBrandon MarshallHipPROBABLEMarshall (hip) did not practice Monday, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

    An unexpected scratch for Saturday's preseason game against the Giants, the 32-year-old Marshall is merely believed to be dealing with some minor soreness. There won't be any cause for concern unless he still isn't practicing by the end of the week.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/27/16WRKyle WilliamsUndisclosedQUESTIONABLEWilliams (undisclosed) was released Wednesday.

    Considering he was already a long shot to make the roster before he suffered an unspecified injury earlier this week, this transaction comes as little surprise. When healthy, he could find a job returning kickoffs or punts with a team needing special teams help.

    (Updated 08/28/2016)
    08/25/16DBDexter McDougleHamstringQUESTIONABLEMcDougle (hamstring) did not participate in Thursday's practice, Eric Allen of the team's official site reports.

    The Jets drafted McDougle back in 2014 with the expectation that he could soon be a cornerstone of the team's secondary. Unfortunately, a torn ACL and other minor injuries have plagued their plans. Rookie Juston Burris and Darryl Morris are likely to see increased reps during his absence.

    (Updated 08/25/2016)
    08/24/16TEJace AmaroGroinQUESTIONABLEAmaro (groin) may not make the final roster, ESPN.com reports.

    Amaro dressed but didn't play in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants, suggesting his absence may not have been entirely injury-related. Regardless, the Jets have blocking specialist Kellen Davis slotted in atop the depth chart, and Zach Sudfeld offers more than Amaro on special teams. A 2014 second-round selection, Amaro impressed early in training camp but failed to make any noise during the preseason. Even if he's kept on the roster, he may be limited to a few snaps per game as an H-back.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/23/16LBJordan JenkinsCalfPROBABLEJenkins (calf) sat out of practice Wednesday, Darryl Slater of NJ.com reports.

    Jenkins left Monday's practice early with a calf injury and was given another day off Wednesday for further rest and recovery. It's reportedly nothing serious and shouldn't linger into the regular season, although there's a good chance he's held out of Saturday's preseason matchup with the Giants for precautionary reasons. We should hear more on his status in the coming few days.

    (Updated 08/24/2016)
    08/23/16WRKenbrell ThompkinsGroinPROBABLEThompkins (groin) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants.

    Thompkins missed some practice time during the week and will thus be held out of Friday's game. He's seemingly the favorite for the No. 4 wideout job, though it isn't exactly clear where the Jets' depth chart stands after Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker and Quincy Enunwa.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/20/16DLLawrence ThomasShoulderPROBABLE (Updated 12/31/1969)
    08/16/16WREric DeckerLegPROBABLEDecker (leg) caught one pass (on five targets) for 22 yards and a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants.

    Decker was only able to catch one of his five targets, but made his lone reception count by finding pay dirt. With Brandon Marshall (hip) out, Decker was the top target in the Jets' starting offense, and saved an otherwise forgetful performance from the first-team unit Saturday.

    (Updated 08/28/2016)
    08/13/16DLSteve McLendonToePROBABLEMcLendon missed Friday's practice with a toe ailment, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.

    After signing a three-year deal in March, the Jets are hoping that McLendon can build on a strong 2015 season and become an asset along the defensive line as a run-stopper. There is no indication that the defensive tackle's toe injury is serious, and it is likely that having him sit out practice Friday is more of a precautionary move.

    (Updated 08/13/2016)
    08/12/16RBDominique WilliamsConcussionQUESTIONABLEWilliams (concussion) will not play in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants.

    Even if he were healthy, Williams would face long odds to make the final roster. Matt Forte, Bilal Powell and Khiry Robinson are all locks, and Antone Smith was recently signed to compete for the No. 4 job.

    (Updated 08/27/2016)
    08/09/16DLMuhammad WilkersonLegPROBABLEWilkerson (leg) could play in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants, though the decision will likely be made close to kickoff, NJ.com reports.

    Wilkerson has yet to play in a preseason game this summer, and with starters traditionally not playing in the fourth game, this would be his last opportunity to get game snaps in before Week 1.

    (Updated 08/23/2016)
    08/08/16RBKhiry RobinsonLower LegPROBABLERobinson (lower leg) won't take the field for Thursday's preseason opener against the Jaguars.

    Just three days removed since his activation from the PUP list, Robinson will be held out as he builds up his workload in advance of the regular season. While it's unclear if he'll log any exhibition snaps over the next month, he'll serve as one of Matt Forte's (hamstring) primary backups with Bilal Powell.

    (Updated 08/11/2016)
    07/29/16DLSheldon RichardsonSuspensionSUSPENDRichardson (suspension) returned to practice Tuesday after a brief excused absence, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.

    Richardson was excused from practice for personal reasons over the weekend by coach Todd Bowles, but was able to return Tuesday. The Jets will be without Richardson for Week 1 due to a suspension, but they should have their starting defensive end throughout the remainder of training camp.

    (Updated 08/02/2016)
    07/28/16RBMatt ForteHamstringPROBABLEForte (hamstring) rushed 10 times for 28 yards and caught two passes for nine yards in Saturday's preseason game against the Giants.

    Forte sat out the Jets' first couple preseason games with a tight hamstring, but made his debut for the team Friday. Although the veteran failed to find much room to run, his 12 total touches all came during the first half, showing just how involved he's expected to be in New York's offense. To ensure he's fresh for Week 1, it wouldn't be surprising if Forte misses Thursday's preseason finale, so his outing against the Giants likely marked his only preseason appearance.

    (Updated 08/28/2016)
    06/08/16TEKellen DavisThumbPROBABLEDavis will miss the remainder of OTAs after undergoing surgery on a torn ligament in his right thumb, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports

    According to head coach Todd Bowles, Davis will be ready for the beginning of training camp in late July. The veteran tight end only had three receptions last season but could see an expanded role in 2016 after the Jets cut Jeff Cumberland earlier in the offseason.

    (Updated 06/08/2016)
    02/16/16KNick FolkQuadricepsPROBABLEFolk (quadriceps) has resumed kicking, Seth Walder of the New York Daily News reports.

    Folk sustained a Grade 1 quadriceps strain during pregame warmups in Week 9, and his fate for the season was sealed just two days later when he landed on injured reserve. In a seven-game sample prior to the injury, his success rate on field goals (13-for-16, or 81.3 percent) was in line with his career mark of 80.6 percent. Of note, though, was a perfect 19-for-19 from the new extra-point distance, which ensures his stature as the Jets' clear-cut kicker, assuming he regains his previous prowess.

    08/23/16DLJabaal SheardKneeQUESTIONABLESheard (knee) participated in individual drills for the first time since spraining his MCL, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

    Sheard's injury occurred during the Patriots' preseason opener against the Saints. While he didn't participate fully, his return is an encouraging sign that the defensive end is nearing a return. He'll be expected to slide into the starting lineup once fully healthy.

    (Updated 08/29/2016)
    08/16/16TEClay HarborUndisclosedPROBABLEHarbor was "shaken up" during Tuesday's practice, ESPN.com reports.

    With Rob Gronkowski missing practice Tuesday and Bryce Williams still sidelined, Harbor's unspecified injury further taxes the Patriots' short-term depth at tight end. The team's current healthy options at the position are Martellus Bennett, AJ Derby, Bear Pascoe and Steven Scheu.

    (Updated 08/16/2016)
    08/16/16TEBryce WilliamsUndisclosedPROBABLEWilliams has missed several days of practice with an undisclosed injury.

    Clearly behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett on the Patriots' tight end depth chart, Williams is competing for depth slotting at the position along with Clay Harbor, A.J. Derby, Steven Scheu and Bear Pascoe.

    (Updated 08/16/2016)
    08/15/16WRMalcolm MitchellElbowQUESTIONABLEWhen asked Sunday for a timetable for his return to full action, Mitchell -- who dislocated his left elbow on Aug. 11 -- said he didn't "have an answer for that," CSN New England reports.

    On the plus side, Mitchell -- who has returned to the practice field in a limited capacity -- while sporting a large brace around his elbow, noted Sunday that he's "feeling good...feeling a lot better than the day it happened." Once he's able to play without restrictions, Mitchell could emerge as a candidate to claim the Patriots' "X" receiver role, but for now his early-season fantasy upside is somewhat stalled by his elbow issue. Beyond that, it may take some in-season injuries for Mitchell to merit lineup consideration, given that there are plenty of other options in the Patriots' passing attack, namely fellow wideouts Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan (and Danny Amendola to a lesser degree), as well as the team's talented tight end combo of Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett.

    (Updated 08/22/2016)
    08/09/16DLRob NinkovichTricepsDOUBTFULNinkovich, who tore his triceps on Aug. 9, was present at the start of Sunday's practice before moving on to the Patriots' lower field to do conditioning work, ESPN.com reports.

    Initial Boston Herald reports suggested that Ninkovich's return would be a matter of "weeks, not months." While it's unclear when the defensive end might be able to practice fully, his presence on the field Sunday, in any capacity, is a positive sign nonetheless.

    (Updated 08/15/2016)
    07/29/16QBTom BradySuspensionSUSPENDBrady (suspension) completed three of nine passes for 76 yards and a touchdown in Friday's preseason game against the Panthers.

    Jimmy Garoppolo started and played the first three drives, before giving way to Brady for the next four series. Brady made a few beautiful throws, including a 33-yard touchdown to Chris Hogan, but he also got quite lucky on an easy dropped interception. Brady is unlikely to play in the Patriots' final exhibition, which means his next game action will come Week 5 in Cleveland, after he serves a four-game suspension.

    (Updated 08/26/2016)
    06/09/16TEMichael WilliamsKneeOUTWilliams tore his left ACL during Wednesday's practice and he'll likely be placed on Injured Reserve, Jim McBride of the Boston Globe reports.

    As expected, Williams' injury was a serious one as he was seen on crutches Thursday awaiting the unfortunate results. This ensures Clay Harbor's spot as the No. 3 option at tight end behind Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett heading into the 2016 season, as Williams enters a long road to recovery.

    (Updated 06/09/2016)
    02/06/16DBMalcolm ButlerKneePROBABLEButler missed the Pro Bowl due to a sprained knee, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports. "There was a play on third down [in the AFC championship game] when I made a tackle or something like that and bent my knee back," Butler said Friday in San Francisco. "It swelled up pretty bad. I didn't feel it during the game because of all the adrenaline pumping. When we got back, it swelled up pretty bad, and the team just decided it was a good thing to sit me out."

    Butler became instantly famous with his game-winning interception of Russell Wilson in last year's Super Bowl, and the loss of Darrelle Revis in free agency elevated him to the Patriots' No. 1 cornerback. The pseudo promotion worked wonders, as Butler notched 67 tackles (56 solo), 15 passes defended, and two interceptions while regularly drawing the opponent's top wide receiver over the course of his second campaign. While his recovery effort won't include surgery, rest and regular icing sessions have been his regimen to date.
